"I haven't made up my mind yet. First-choice goalkeeper Shay Given has suffered injuries so I may get a taste of first-team action.

"But then again, I always want to make appearances, so I'd better stay with Falkirk and gain experience.

"For the time being, I keep all options open."

Krul has made 12 appearances for Falkirk, who are 10th in the league.

He says: "I have played a long series of matches in succession, which is very important for me."

Krul will be in goal against Rangers on Saturday and added: "These are hectic times but I hope to have my future sorted out soon."
